LIFE+ CELSTAB Final Conference
German Sustainability Award & Congress, Düsseldorf Dec 6th-7th, 2018
The P&G booth was located very prominently at the entrance of the congress area, participants had to pass by it on their way to panel discussions and keynote speeches. The aim was to show that P&G brands improve everyday life and at the same time we have a very targeted approach for making responsible consumption possible.Examples that prove P&G’s approach were several innovations and initiatives across the key focus areas and life cycle: Sustainable packaging Fairy Ocean Plastic, Fabric Care, Hair Care, AHP recycling, AGM from renewable resources (Pampers), FemCare CELSTAB, Ariel Pods.For deeper conversations at the booth we had a table with integrated touch screen display that was running a presentation on every aspect of P&G’s sustainability approach and the showcased initiatives: from Ambition 2030 and the goals we already achieved to AHP recycling, Life-Cycle thinking, and resource efficiency. We had the opportunity to meet Roberto Marinucci, VP Pampers Wipes & AHP Recycling, to talk about the collaboration and replication possibilities in the future.
EDANA international Nonwovens Symposium, Rome – May 23rd-24th, 2018
Mid-term Workshop Towards the Next Generation of Absorbent System for FemCare Pads in P&G, Feb 7th-9th, 2017
The ideas were summarized by capturing:
– Consumer Benefit the prototype will bring to her
– Technical Problem to solve- Mechanism(s) chosen to solve the Technical Problem
– Enabling Material and Design Choices to deliver the Mechanism
At the end of the workshop, all ideas were shared with management and key technology experts. CELSTAB absorbent system was re-defined to bring the best technology to the consumers in short term.
SETAC (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) Europe 22nd LCA Case Study Symposium, Montpellier (France) - Sept. 20th – 22nd, 2016
Bayern Innovativ, Textil Innovativ, Fürth – March 1st, 2016
LIFE+ CELSTAB is presented in Textil Innovativ Congress in March 1st, 2016.
We shared how to demonstrate the actions for mitigating the environmental impact (waste, resource efficiency and transport) in the absorbent products for feminine hygiene sector and how to develop the products through a combination of eco-design technologies, engineering optimization and integration of cellulose fibers.
– Technical: to demonstrate that the updated innovative multi-layer material concept and technology can meet consumer product, quality and industrial scale production process requirements, improving the cost-benefit ratio, while at the same time drastically reducing the use of material, volume and transport costs and impact;
– Environmental: prove that the manufacturing and logistics related to the new disposal pads offer environmental benefits in terms of reduction of material usage (up to 25%), volume and transport. It implies consequent improvements in the overall life cycle performances: resource efficiency through less materials (15-25%), reduced transport (97.500 tCO2eq./yr saving);
– Policy and Market: to establish an industrial show-case in the field of disposal pads to influence the European market and policy makers to shift towards a more eco -oriented product development.
